    After watching a lot of dog work today and running the blind this afternoon, I think it's an excellent blind. Every part requires being on your toes, and as I told Sammie, "Don't take one bit of it for granted!" From the first angle entry to the last second of the exit from the fourth piece of water - it's a challenge. It was definitely a rush to run!

    BTW, the out of sight part is not causing any problems that you don't have plenty of time to remedy if your dog felt like running a WB today.

    Some would argue he is already in a world of pain! He owns Chessies.

    I really hope I get back out to watch some of the latter series. Such a great event so close to home.

    Jeff that is true I never told him he is not a lab. Although he did fall for a flat coat in training at one point.!

    Thanks for your comments Lauren. Means a lot from someone who has run it.
